How does our design work affect those that use our buildings? To answer that question, we created a “day in the life” look at what it would be like for a typical patient, nurse and doctor at the Barnes-Jewish Center for Outpatient Health. The 322,000 square foot building on the Washington University Medical Center campus hosts more than 90,000 patient visits in an average year and has garnered high user satisfaction ratings. So what makes it so special?
Based on our understanding of these individuals and their unique “roles”, we were able to highlight their goals and schedules and how the design of the COH makes their responsibilities and activities more convenient and efficient.
